city directory in Basin, WY. As per the Social Security death record, she
passed away in Basin, Big Horn Co. Wyoming
on the 24 Apr 2003 at the age of 87. The couple had no children. It
appears that she lived nearly 63 years or more in the Big

Memories: Georgia Rose was tiny and quick moving and
worked sometimes at her brother William (Bill) Garoutte’s
garage in Ten Sleep. She was a private person and mainly kept to herself.
Her brother had been md to Thelma Hawks for a short time and I believe she kept
in touch with Thelma as they were both born in Stillwater,
